Triple C Cloud Computing, the Israeli hosting and Internet service
provider with the largest tier-4 datacenter in the country and Microsoft
Hosting Partner of the Year, and Parallels,
the platform provider for cloud service delivery, recently announced
their expanded relationship. Triple C customers now have greater
flexibility over how they manage their cloud services, lower costs by 15
to 30 percent and the ability to reach smaller, more price-sensitive
“The hosting business is extremely competitive and we are always
searching for ways to lower operational costs while delivering more of
the tools our customers need,” said Erez Rozenbaum, cloud services
manager, Triple C Cloud Computing. “By taking advantage of the latest
cloud server capabilities from Microsoft and offering the familiar
management portal delivered by Parallels, we are able to deliver greater
flexibility for our largest customers and lower price points to smaller
Earlier in 2014, Triple C qualified as an inaugural member of the
Microsoft Cloud OS Network, a worldwide consortium of cloud service
providers that offer hybrid cloud solutions delivered from the Windows
Server 2012 R2 operating system with Hyper-V, Microsoft System Center
2012 R2 and Windows Azure Pack.
With Windows Azure Pack and the Microsoft Cloud Platform Suite, Triple C
can now offer customers a way to use Microsoft Azure-like services even
when there is no Azure datacenter in Israel. “Having a link to a big
public cloud provider gives our customers more flexibility and scale
coupled with the benefits of a local cloud provider,” said Ely Cohen,
chief technology officer, Triple C Cloud Computing. “For them, it’s the
best of both worlds. They can run a workload in our datacenter and move
it to another Microsoft partner or to Azure, and it’s very easy, with
all services in their local language.”
Triple C offers Windows Azure Pack using Parallels Automation, the most
widely adopted cloud service delivery platform used to provision and
manage services like Windows Azure Pack. Triple C customers are already
accustomed to using the Parallels Automation platform, making it easy
for them to order and manage Windows Azure Pack services through the
familiar Parallels Automation customer control panel.
“The Parallels Automation platform combined with Microsoft technologies
provides a cloud offering that can be provisioned in minutes, instead of
days,” said John Zanni, chief marketing officer, Service Provider,
Parallels. “We are excited to see companies like Triple C take these
unique capabilities to accelerate time to market and provide a greater
value to the customer.”
By taking advantage of Windows Azure Pack, Triple C expects to reach new
customers at both ends of the spectrum—small businesses that need more
affordable virtualization and hosting offerings, and enterprise
organizations that need more flexible hybrid cloud options. “We expect
to increase our revenues by up to 40 percent because of the additional
services that Windows Azure Pack makes possible for us to offer,” said
Cohen. “Plus, we can redirect our development resources to other,
higher-value services than developing public cloud technologies that
Microsoft has already created. We have a definite competitive advantage
with Windows Azure Pack and Parallels Automation. When we tell customers
that we are using the same technology that Microsoft uses, it sells.”
By switching from VMware to Hyper-V, Triple C has reduced the price of
its public cloud IaaS services by 15 to 30 percent. Furthermore, the
company’s addition of Windows Azure Pack facilitates more granular
billing, with hosting services available by the hour. “With the
Microsoft Cloud Platform Suite licensing and product offering, we pay
lower virtualization licensing costs for the same virtualization
density,” said Rozenbaum. “This lets us offer lower prices for
price-sensitive customers and reach a much broader market, from small
business to enterprise.”
Parallels® provides the platform for service providers to sell and
deliver great cloud services to businesses worldwide and cross-platform
solutions. Parallels began operations in 2000 and has developed into a
fast-growing software company with more than 900 employees across
offices in North America, Europe, Africa, Australia and Asia.

In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.
